Why is my vape juice so expensive??

You get what you pay for with premium e-juice

Okay, we’ve all been through this right? Why is an American Apparel white t-shirt 7x more expensive than the white t-shirts at target? Why does one vape juice cost more than the next brand when it supposedly has a very similar flavor and nicotine level?

It’s the same with vape juice. More premium e-juices use better ingredients, flavoring and their production environment may be a lot more desirable. You get what you pay for folks.

In this blog post you will get a full understanding of what makes your vape juice so expensive and common misconceptions that may help you better enjoy your favorite flavor or brand!
